Peer-to-peer ethernet I/O modules

Tuesday, 08 July, 2008 | Supplied by: Advantech Australia Pty Ltd

A firmware enhancement for the ADAM-6000 ethernet I/O modules adds advanced peer-to-peer (P2P) and graphic condition logic (GCL) functionality.

With peer-to-peer functionality, these distributed ethernet I/O modules can actively update input channel status to specific output channels. In the past, a controller was needed to read data from the ethernet input modules to ethernet output modules. Now the data will transfer automatically, with no extra controller or programming needed. This can also minimise the system response time.

GCL is a windows-based software utility to add control logic between input and output without extensive programming. GCL can easily create equivalent instructions to simple ladder logic instructions on PLCs. It also supports flexible cascade function locally or over the ethernet network.

The ADAM-6000 modules provided a variety of input/output options, a simple PC ladder logic, logic cascade and feedback function, online monitoring of running status, the ability to connect to SCADA/HMI software, a built-in web server and a fast response time.
